How do you delete a My Business location without deleting its Google+ page?

Basically, I set up a Google+ page as a local business long ago before I understood the purpose of local listings. The business is actually a brand rather than a shopfront. The trouble is, I can't now delete the location without deleting the associated Google+ page, which I'd really like to keep.

 

I don't want to mark the location as permanently closed because it isn't - it never existed. It's very frustrating that Google won't let me simply remove a location. It's clearly because they want to ensure the accuracy of Maps, but it's damaging my experience as a user. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Two remarks:

deleting a page from your dashboard will not delete anu other pages nor the entire account.

But even you would delete the local page it still remains on Google data repositirt and will continue showing up on GoogleMaps.

I recommend to contact business support to get help

Thanks Helmut, much appreciated. So there is no way to delete a location myself? I'll get in touch with support, as you suggest. Have a marvellous weekend.
